Lapland Lake Cross Country Ski Center

Reviewed By Cherie M - New Paltz, New York

My husband and I had visited Lapland Lake about 10 years ago for a day visit for cross country skiing (we were dating at the time). We found them "by accident" - we had wanted to take a day trip together for cross country skiing and found them via Google. On that day, we saw the cabins and just loved the setting and promised each other we would return to stay in the cabins and visit this wonderful and peaceful resort again.
After all these years, my husband told me he needed to take a vacation (he works very hard) and I remembered our promise so we booked Suksi Tupa for a couple of nights and we are so glad we did! The cabin was wonderful and Kathy and Paul were so helpful and patient with all our questions. The other employees were also helpful and friendly (I do have to mention Phil -- what a sweetheart!).
On our way to Lapland Lake, we phoned ahead and ordered a couple of meals from their catered Tupa dinner service and I am so glad we did. Very generous and delicious portions (we had enough for two meals) and easy to heat up in the microwave. I have to mention that the beds were very comfortable and the sheets and towels smelled so nice.
Unfortunately (?) - the weather was on the warm side so there were not many trails open for skiing but definitely enough to fill our time. Even with all the cabins around us being filled, this place was so quiet - it was just what my husband needed.
We will be back - I hope it won't be such a long wait this time.
Thanks again, Kathy and Paul.

Grandview Mini Golf

Grandview Mini Golf is NOT CLOSED but under new management! Feeling like puttin' around? Come visit us on the Great Sacandaga Lake for 18 holes of fresh air and miniature golf. No chutes and ladders here, but plenty of fun trying to avoid water, the infamous "log" and other hazards. Fun for the beginner and pro alike. Reasonably priced for families/seniors. Pre-school children are free. Season passes and special dates/times are available. Near Northampton Beach, family fun at its finest! (You can find us on Facebook)

Adirondack Park

The largest park in the lower 48 states offers year-round outdoor and indoor environmental activities for all ages.

Reviewed By Harry D - Salt Springs, Florida

At slightly larger than the entire state of New Hampshire, it takes more than 3 hours to cross. Towns are as far as 40 miles apart. There are 6000 lakes and ponds all open to the public although many are not accessible except to avid hikers. There are small and a few medium towns scattered around which mainly supported by tourism. Snowmobiling, boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, and just plain touring are all popular in this beautiful park. Most every type of accommodation is available. Enjoy.

Great Sacandaga Lake

Reviewed By BjornvE - Bloomingdale, New Jersey

Great Sacandaga lake is a year round attraction. Set in the lower Adirondacks with the size of lake George, but less commercialized, less trafficked and lots of good fishing.
No matter the season the lake is fantastic and will enrich your life. And so easy to access.
We swim, scuba, canoe, boat and fish and snowmobiling is big here.

Adirondack Country Store

Reviewed By STX_M3 - Tucson, Arizona

Maybe the best Adirondack gift shop in the Adirondack Mountains! The Adirondack Mountains are famous for its Great Camps, huge pine trees, hundreds of lakes, its own culture, own boat (the Adirondack Guide Boat), fishing, hunting, and vacationing. The Adirondack Country Store is hidden away on the north end of Main Street in Northville, New York. It is an old home converted into a wonderful gift and clothing shop featuring Adirondack items. If you are in the area, definitely stop in . . . wonderfully done!

Waterfront Park

Reviewed By Larry W - Rochester, New York

Waterfront Park is a really pretty (and partially hidden) park, located right on the lake in downtown Northville. For the most part, this park is hidden behind the businesses on Main Street, although they are soon adding an archway sign in Adirondack style to the park's entrance.

This park is designed fur multi-purpose use. You can simple stroll through the grounds and enjoy the fine view down into the lake, or you can at one of the many picnic tables and enjoy music from the bandstand. This park is often used by the local organizations to host gatherings and festivals, and it will be the site of the 2014 National Trails Day festivities (June 7-8, 2014).

Don't miss the opportunity to visit this hidden gem of a spot!
